About the Book

Warning: this book is my PhD dissertation and contains academic research. It’s made available primarily to aid others who are conducting their own research. If this is what you seek, here’s an overview:

Contemporary Christianity has arguably made the same mistakes today as the Pharisees and Sadducees made two thousand years ago. The Pharisees added many human-made rules and traditions to the Bible, while the Sadducees reduced Scripture to only the Law of Moses, ignoring the rest of the Old Testament. Similarly, modern Christians have created their own traditions that either override or limit biblical truth, neglecting important teachings from the New Testament.

This dilutes the authority of God’s word. This theological foundation of the contemporary church is neither biblically nor historically valid, leading to numerous practices that conflict with biblical principles.

Most of today’s Christianity stems from the Reformation, but as it happened over 500 years ago, a new major movement is on the horizon. This work will explore present-day revolutionary developments in comparison to the Protestant Reformation. The question is, will this revolution result in further division, as historical evidence suggests, or will it bring about greater unity among followers of Jesus? Will we witness a convergence of our faith?

About the Author
Peter DeHaan

Peter DeHaan, PhD, often makes religious people squirm, but spiritual seekers cheer. He’s not trying to be provocative, but he seeks truth, even if it makes some people uncomfortable. He yearns for Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.

Peter earned his doctorate, awarded with high distinction, from Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary. He lives with his wife in beautiful Southwest Michigan and wrangles crossword puzzles in his spare time.
